My "wanties" for this autumn

My boyfriend Garth and I are looking for the perfect first apartment to buy here in London. We have previously rented fully furnished, but now have a shot at building our home up from scratch. To make our home as personal, inspiring and functional as possible we will mix Garths heritage from Zimbabwe and my Scandinavian background. I want to keep it airy and stylish, but incorporate a light eclectic touch from Africa.

Here on my page I will share what's going on in my mind in the subjects of interiors, style and design, and I'm starting off with my "wanties" for this autumn.




Intermezzo Champagne cup

Intermezzo Champagne cup

Is there anything better than sipping crispy cold champagne out of a great glass? Right now I prefer champagne cups to flutes and the glass should be really thin, so you barely feel it against your lip. Exactly like these Intermezzo glasses from Orrefors. We have seen the blue drop before, but the cup is new and it has just the kind of retro modern style I love right now.

Anisha table lamp

Anisha table lamp

I have never been a big fan of table lamps. They are usually quite ugly and only there out of necessity. But Foscarini has hit the nail on the head with Anisha; their new white, stylish lamp which is both innovative and modern. I would love to fill my home with Foscarinis design, it's a new favourite brand of mine.

Lången bench

Lången bench

I can see this grey/white birch bench from Ernst Kirchsteiger in my new (still imaginary, but soon) hallway. It can be hard to plan for a natural place to sit in smaller spaces like hallways, that's when a nice, clean, well-designed bench is perfect. Especially if there are a few of you struggling to put your shoes on in the morning.

Mademoiselle Oiseau

Mademoiselle Oiseau

All the fashion bloggers have been swooning over Lousia Burfitt and Rörstrand's collaboration "Mademoiselle Oiseau". And I know it's so predictable, but it is a favourite of mine too. Lovisa Burfitt's illustrations are so beautiful and really speak to us women. China + fashion = Why not?

Kitchen Aid Artisan

Kitchen Aid Artisan

All of us hobby-chefs and wannabe bakers need a kitchen aid, and preferably in a fun colour. My choice is this super pretty crystal blue one, and it makes me happy just looking at it. A design classic in a new outfit, so useful, yet also a great way of putting a splash of colour into your kitchen.

Eva solo tea bag in stainless steel

Eva solo tea bag in stainless steel

In the country of tea-drinkers, I can't afford to be unprepared. No matter if its green, red, earl grey or builders tea, it will taste the best out of a proper tea strainer. Why not this one from one of my favourite brands Eva Solo?

Ribbons tea light lantern

Ribbons tea light lantern

Autumn means cosy dinners and lots of candles in my home. I love the contrast between the white candles and the raw black steel, the hard and the soft, in these lanterns from Georg Jensen. It makes them stylish, cosy and interesting without getting too girlie on a cold evening.

Mine Assiett

Mine side plate in pink

I want to serve Eaton Mess made with homemade meringues, raspberries, vanilla ice cream and cream on these pink side plates from the Mine - collection from Kosta Boda. The whole set is beautifully ethereal.
